T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 Points Table Updated after RSA vs USA | South Africa beat United States by 18 Runs


T20 World Cup 2024: South Africa, led by Aiden Markram defeated the Aaron Jones led United States of America by a margin of 18 runs in their first T20 World Cup 2024 Super eight match which was played at North Sound’s Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on 19th June.

The South Africans successfully managed to defend a target of 195 runs as fast bowler Kagiso Rabada played a crucial role in his team’s win with figures of 3-18 in his four overs.

Chasing the target of 195 runs, the United States got off to a good start as opener Steven Taylor (24 runs) leading the assault with the bat against the pace bowling unit of the Proteas but Kagiso Rabada got the better of the Southpaw as he sent him back to the pavilion.

Following the dismissal of Taylor, the co-hosts kept on losing wickets at regular intervals with Corey Anderson (12 runs), captain Aaron Jones (0 runs), Nitish Kumar (8 runs) and Shayan Jahangir (3 runs) walking back to the dugout without scoring valuable runs.

It looked really difficult for the Americans to get back in the match but the duo of Harmeet Singh (38 runs) and Andries Gous (80 runs) stitched a 91 run stand for sixth wicket and brought their team back in the game. This partnership almost snatched the game away from the Proteas as in the final two overs, the Aaron Jones-led team needed just 28 runs to win the match.

But, Kagiso Rabada decided to take matters in his own hands and in the 19th over of the USA inning, he got the much needed breakthrough again as he removed Harmeet Singh on the first delivery which made the assault of the co-hosts come to an halt.

Following the dismissal of Harmeet, things got tougher for the Americans and they eventually lost the match by 18 runs. Andries Gous was the best batter of the match as he played an unbeaten knock of 80 runs in just 47 balls which included five sixes and five fours.
